Background: Gastroesophageal pathologies are common and multifactorial in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1DM). The evaluation with endoscopy and 24 h pH esophageal monitoring is expensive and not always available in all medical centers, especially in developing countries so more cost-effective algorithms for diagnosis are required. Clinical questionnaires are easy to apply but its utility for gastroesophageal reflux disease screening in patients with long standing T1DM must be analyzed...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is defined as symptoms or complications associated with regurgitation from the stomach and/or the duodenum to the esophagus. Patients with type II diabetes mellitus (DM) were known to have higher prevalence of GERD in the Western countries, but data on the impact of GERD on DM patients in our country are scarce. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate the presence of GERD in type II DM patients admitted at the Department of Medicine, Mymensingh Medical College Hospital, Mymensingh, Bangladesh from April 2015 to September 2015...

Objective: Published research in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) appears limited despite OSA being a highly prevalent adult and pediatric disease leading to many adverse outcomes if left untreated. We aimed to quantify the deficit in OSA scientific literature in order to provide a novel way of identifying gaps in knowledge and a need for further research inquiry. Methods: This was a Bibliometric analysis study. Using Ovid Medline database we analyzed and compared research output (medical and surgical) between adult OSA and similarly prevalent chronic conditions (Type II diabetes (T2DM), coronary artery disease (CAD) and osteoarthritis (OA)) from December 2016 up to fifty years prior...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic disease characterized with heartburn and regurgitation symptoms. The prevalence of these symptoms in Turkey is reported to be as high as 20%. GERD negatively effects the quality of life along with the development of some complications due to chronic course. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is commonly performed for diagnosis and surveillance of complications in the context of GERD. However, there is no consensus in terms of timing and indications for endoscopy, use of esophagitis classification system, to obtain a biopsy sample or recommendation for surveillance endoscopy...

The care of patients with difficult-to-control asthma ('difficult asthma') is challenging and costly. Despite high-intensity asthma treatment, these patients experience poor asthma control and face the greatest risk for asthma morbidity and mortality. Poor asthma control is often driven by severe asthma biology, which has appropriately been the focus of intense research and phenotype-driven therapies. However, it is increasing apparent that extra-pulmonary comorbidities also contribute substantially to poor asthma control and a heightened disease burden...

BACKGROUND: Asthma in the elderly population (60 years of age and older) is frequently underdiagnosed, as well as atopy. Atopy, although more prevalent in younger patients, can be a major cause of asthma in the elderly. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular disease are common differential diagnoses, especially in elderly smokers. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess atopy and comorbidities in elderly patients with asthma...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is steadily growing to be the largest threat to human health in this century, not only increasing prevalence of obesity-related co-morbidity but also impairing health-related quality of life (QoL). Bariatric surgery has shown to improve co-morbidity as well as QoL. OBJECTIVES: To assess the differences in improvement in QoL for the 2 most performed procedures: laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB)...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. Some evidence shows that gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) may be a trigger for paroxysmal AF (PAF). Most of the previous studies that correlated GERD and AF used questionnaires to diagnose GERD, not an objective evaluation. This study aims to evaluate in patients with PAF: (a) accuracy of symptoms to diagnose GERD; (b) prevalence of GERD; and (c) temporal correlation between cardiac arrhythmia and reflux...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Esophageal atresia is rare, but improved surgical and intensive care techniques have increased rates of survival in children, so there are now many adults with this disorder. Many patients with esophageal atresia develop gastroesophageal reflux (GER), raising concerns about increased risk of Barrett's esophagus (BE; prevalence of 1.3%-1.6% in general population) and esophageal carcinoma. We assessed the prevalence of BE and esophageal carcinoma in this population. METHODS: We performed a prospective study of 289 patients with esophageal atresia at the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Erasmus MC University Medical Center in The Netherlands, from May 2012 through March 2017...

BACKGROUNDS/AIMS: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome, is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease in cross-sectional studies, but a prospective association has not been evaluated. The current study aimed to determine whether NAFLD increases the risk of incident reflux esophagitis in a large cohort study. METHODS: We conducted a cohort study of 34,063 men and women without reflux esophagitis or other upper gastrointestinal disease at baseline who underwent health check-up examinations between January 2003 and December 2013...

There is increasing prevalence of both asthma and obesity in children globally in recent years. Various epidemiological studies link obesity as a risk factor for asthma and suggest a possible causal association. Obesity asthma phenotype is considered as distinct in view of greater severity and poor asthma control. Various mechanisms underlying this phenotype have been suggested including mechanical effects of obesity and systemic inflammation, but still the exact mechanism is unclear. Also, the comorbidities like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and sleep disordered breathing (SDB) lead to inflammation in airways and contribute to asthma obesity association...

Background: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are among the most commonly prescribed medications in clinical practice. PPI use has been associated with the development of community-acquired pneumonia. With a reported prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and PPI use that is higher than the general population, patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) are particularly vulnerable to PPI adverse effects. We sought to explore whether PPI use was associated with a higher number of hospitalizations for CF pulmonary exacerbation...

Purpose: Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a chronic health condition in which the symptoms often go unnoticed. Oral problems accompanying GERD may include non-specific burning sensation, mucosa ulceration and erosion, erythema of the soft/hard palate mucosa and uvula, loss of taste and either xerostomia or increased salivary flow with potential long-term complications such as difficulty swallowing, trouble breathing, esophagitis and potential development of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of using a GERD screening in the dental clinic setting to identify and refer patients...

Dysphagia is a common symptom that is important to recognise and appropriately manage, given that causes include life threatening oesophageal neoplasia, oropharyngeal dysfunction, the risk of aspiration, as well as chronic disabling gastroesophageal reflux (GORD). The predominant causes of dysphagia varies between cohorts depending on the interplay between genetic predisposition and environmental risk factors, and is changing with time. Currently in white Caucasian societies adopting a western lifestyle, obesity is common and thus associated gastroesophageal reflux disease is increasingly diagnosed...

GOAL: The goal of this study is to determine factors associated with performance of duodenal biopsy during upper endoscopy. BACKGROUND: Celiac disease (CD) prevalence approaches 1% in the United States and Europe, yet CD remains underdiagnosed, in part because of low rates of duodenal biopsy during upper endoscopy. We aimed to identify patient and provider factors associated with performance of duodenal biopsy during upper endoscopy. STUDY: In our hospital-based endoscopy suite, we identified all patients not previously diagnosed with CD who underwent upper endoscopy during a 5-year period for one of the following indications: abdominal pain/dyspepsia, gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), anemia/iron deficiency, diarrhea, and weight loss...

Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a highly prevalent disorder that affects more than 10% of the population. In the past decade, the conceptual underpinning of FD has begun to change, and new data are unraveling the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms of this disorder with a focus on the duodenum. The Rome IV criteria were published in 2016, and notably suggests that gastroesophageal reflux disease and irritable bowel syndrome may all be part of the same disease spectrum as FD. Helicobacter pylori explains a minority of FD cases and in Rome IV is considered a separate entity...
